| From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: FURUI SHIRO "Old Castle". 36", ML. I have had my eye on this seedling, originally designated as 'KOJO', for a couple years as a possible introduction. This year it proved to be fantastic and even captured the “best seedling” award at our iris show. The yellow background is heavily veined maroon red and the eyelash pattern is quite wide and intense red. There are three branches on the stalk giving about 10 blooms. The terminal on a well grown plant will push a fourth bud to extend the season. The plant is very vigorous here. $45.00
